I like the top photo.
Mandos also sometimes need to be used when an event changes a fairway, such as a tree fall, which opens up a route that makes the hole seem stupid thereafter.
A quick question: It isn't always possible to mark the ground with a Mandatory line, and sometimes there may be regulations against doing so on public courses. However, the language seems to explicitly say the line must be marked on the ground. Why can't the mando line also be established by oral and written rules issued by the TD before the start? The way it is worded now, the only way a TD can have their wishes fulfilled is to mark the ground.
